What are my rights regarding health care?

You have the right to the same health care as everyone in Norway, such as going to the doctor or hospital and receiving certain types of medication. The right to health care applies when you come to Norway and ask for protection (asylum).

You can get a GP. Meaning that you can go to the same doctor every time. To get a GP, you can call the GP phone, +47 810 59 500.
